What's New at DeskDemon in June 2007
Hello everyone!

Welcome to the September issue of What's New @ DeskDemon, your quick-scan summary of all the latest hot features on the largest website in the world for Executive PAs and secretaries. And once more, our partners are offering super prizes and give-aways to reward you for the important role you play in today's workplaces. With the chance to get £10 fuel vouchers, a brand new stapler, and tickets to the Ideal Home Show in Glasgow all absolutely free, you really can't go wrong!

And we've been fascinated to see all the chat going on in our new Your Voice feature. Some contentious views being expressed there - let's have more of it! It makes for gripping reading! Two new PA topics are about to be added to Your Voice which should spark some feisty debate, so go and check it out, and then have your say!

The 2007 Management Support Fellowship Award is going from strength to strength and clearly rivals the X Factor when it comes to voting! So do get involved, read about the candidates and then exercise your power to keep them in, or vote them out! And don't forget, the winner of the Award scoops an amazing £10,000 in cash. So what are you waiting for - their fate is in your hands!

Plus, if you haven't yet nominated someone you think is worthy, or indeed would like to nominate yourself, September's candidates will be available to view soon, so get cracking.

Let's take a look at what else is happening on your favourite site this month...

Say no to sarcasm!
Workplace Communication

Sarcasm - the lowest form of wit - weakens teamwork and reduces morale, especially if you're the target of this often cruel humour. Our feature shows you what to change if you are a sarcastic person and what to do if you are the butt of sarcastic jokes.

Are you coming through loud and clear?
Communication Skills

We are always being told that excellent communication skills are a vital element of today's workplace. But what exactly are communication skills, and how do we improve them? We take a look at the dynamics of relating with each other, including verbal and non-verbal techniques, and give you some pointers to getting your message across effectively.
